The Islamic Emirate of Takiran is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Anwar Al-Awlaki with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.426 billion Takiranis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamila. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Takirani economy, worth 149 trillion Takirani Pesis a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,011 Takirani Pesis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Many say faith is a crutch for those who can't move forward, the government is a law unto itself, babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, and onions have been banned due to their tendency to cause eye irritation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Takiran's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.
